  • Delightful Denia Delightful Denia

    Dénia is located on the east coast of Spain, along the coastal stretch known as the Costa Blanca. Denia is very much a family resort and one of the most popular tourist destinations on the northen Costa Blanca. A quiet little town that was once the centre of the region's raisin growing industry. Although tourism has taken over, raisins are still grown here and remain to be a local delicacy. The main avenue in Dénia is the Marques de Campo where you can sit and watch the world go by. In the Plaza de Constitucion you will find a wonderful 17th century church. The area around Dénia has been voted the third healthiest place to live by the World Health Organisation.


    Denia is right on the coast and the 20 km of beaches are of very high quality with lots of brightly coloured restaurants and bars by the sea. Denia's beaches are very wide with great watersports such as windsurfing. Every year the beaches are awarded the European Blue Flag for their water quality and clean fine sand.

    Denia-beachTo the north of Denia there are the fine sand beaches of Les Marines. To the south of Denia the rocky area of Les Rotes with its spectacular coves of transparent waters which are ideal for those who enjoy diving or snorkeling.

    The town of Denia is large with a real Spanish feel. It's a working town unlike Javea (for example) which is very much more a tourist town. The main street in Denia has shady plane trees, loads of cafes and designer shops. It's almost like being in a big city. Denia's facilities are excellent - a modern hospital, spas, two high quality golf courses in La Sella and Oliva Nova.

    At night Denia buzzes with nightlife, not necessarily discos but more with the hundreds of bars, live entertainment and restaurants, many of which are right on the sea front. There is charm and atmosphere. If you are looking for a younger more happening place, packed with clubs you would be better off trying Benidorm.

    Many parts of Denia are quite industrialised, this is not your typical fishing village turned tourist resort however it does appeal to some people because of this. Whereas many other towns empty for the winter with many restaurants and bars shuttered up, Denia hustles and bustles all year round with a good variety of amenities and facilities.
